    JTT/Hant, it’s honestly hard to engage with “Taxes hurt the middle class!” because it shows a failure to understand that every developed country on earth that pays more taxes has a stronger middle class than the United States. Plain and simple.

    here’s another link of job examples https://www.google.ca/amp/s/amp.cnn...-guarantee-gaining-steam-democrats/index.html

    BTW, here is the guy One Brpw calls shallow and unrealistic. I'm confident that his credentials put One Brow to shame:

    Corporations have broken this somewhat but I'll give it a shot. I'm going to apply to all of these places that cant find any help in this hot economy. They'll tell me they start out at $9.50/hr and I'll say I'll work for $11. Theyll likely tell me corporate wont let them hire for $11 and that'll be the end of it.

    Where is the supply and demand aspect anymore?

    Referencing his credentials is a good idea for you. Referencing his columns essays would be a bad move for you. Stick to credentials.

    LOL, I see you still think people accept this sort of ******** as fact. Everyone knows that if you compared the higher disposable household income of rich America to the lower levels of wealthy Western European nations (extreme outlier Luxemburg excepted) that America's middle class would outperform them in these arbitrarily drawn figures. But alas, our poor are just too rich to be included in the middle class like they are in France, Germany, Finland, UK, Spain, Denmark, Norway... and our upper class is just too damn vast, paying all these taxes to transfer wealth to our poor.

    Handing out vague insults is a good idea for you. Referencing his columns and showing where his thinking is shallow would be a bad move for you. Stick to insults.

    I consider the open borders gambit to be enabling for the corporates to depress wages. American citizen unemployed can sit at home and collect benefits because there is an abundance of illegal (and to some extent, legal) labor willing to do the work for less.

    I don't know how we can really maintain a different level of prices or wages as long as there are disparate economies worldwide. It has to work out to some kind of leveling somehow, but I would prefer building up people and business "over there" to just tearing ours down.

    Yet people in medical school can get student loans to cover pretty much anything based on the likelihood they will end up a doctor. They have loans practically thrown at them. Not having money is not as big of a road block to becoming a doctor as you make it sound. Once you pass a certain point, you are financially guaranteed to be fine, other than the years it will take to pay off those loans, which seems high but is really easier to pay off than most other degrees.

    If you can get to medical school with decent grades, you are set. If you in particular are not, then you haven't tried.

    Would you like to pick a column of his, or shall I? There are so many to choose from, I would hate to think I stacked the deck by choosing low-hanging fruit.

    I am interested in these reasons that data should be skewed in favor of Hispanics/blacks but not white people that also has nothing to do with race. Your sentence alone is a contradiction.

    That read to me as you saying that since America's rich people have more disposable income than those of Western Europe, (and possibly the middle class as well, though you did not say that), this means the American middle class "outperforms" the Western European middle class. I'm not sure what "outperform" means here (not to claim dalamon's "stronger" was more specific).

    Yeah, he has said a few times there's value in diversity and the different perspectives of certain minorities, which is why it makes sense to select them preferentially, while at the same time claiming it has nothing to do with race. I've seen some impressive mental gymnastics over the years, but this is right up there.

    Just the facts. But I know religious people don't care about facts, so I don't see why you'd even respond.
